Please bring back the manual fan control back to y540 and y740

2019-10-03, 10:05 AM

I've recently purchased a legion y540 (i7 9750h, 16GB RAM, 1660ti, 144Hz). Dont get me wrong, it's a great laptop, but the temps on this machine are on the high side. While gaming (BF1, Rainbow Six etc.,) my CPU hits 90+C temps. I have already undervolted the cpu to -140mV but it doesnt help, the only solution that worked effectively was to underclock my CPU to 3.7 GHz and limit power draws. I know that there was once a time when you guys offered a manual fan control option and the thermals were great back then. I don't exactly know what made you remove that option all together but everyone in the community wants it back. Please dont make me or the members of the community regret our decision in buying these machines.

We all need to stand together on this!

 

I have the Y540 17" RTX2060 model and after a -150mv undervolt and keeping it on balanced mode my cpu temps hardly go past 

70°C , but thats only after a few mins of gaming or benchmarking.

 

The initial temps on my cpu thermal throttle at 94°C in seconds of starting a game or bench, but drop after the fans ramp up to actually

cool the system.

 

Plus the fans only really start to ramp after about 60°C - 65°C

 

 

I would love to be able to make my fans ramp after 50°C or so like I have on my desktop.

 

LENOVO!! Get on this!

Hold on, I thought they bring it back with the latest BIOS update? No?

I bought my Y540 early august this year (2019) with bios that did not have max fan option. Since then I have had three bios updates (31, 32, 33) and none of them have done anything to this issue. I have not seen any comments about this from Lenovo. I asked about this directly from support with no answer whatsoever.

 

Lenovo - for some reason - does not want us to have Max fan option any more. I do not know why, but I think that there might be some problems with the fans lasting for 2 years (warranty) if max fan is used much. This is just my own speculation. I think that CPU lasts even if it goes to 100c° time to time...

 

I would like to have the option to use max fan. I have to use the quiet mode for now or accept those high temperatures. It is not a huge problem for me since laptop performs very well even on quiet mode while temps stay on around 90c° or less.
